Hi,

I've got a weird problem going on when I paint our ceiling. The paint 'cracks' and lifts after an hour or two.

I'm using a regular Dulux Diamond White Matt paint, going onto a regular plasterboard ceiling that has previously had the original construction finish (10 years old now).

Does anyone know what's going on, or how to prevent it?

I've attached a photo to show the issue.

Many thanks for any advice!

:welcomeuhm:

I can only assume some sort of contamination on the ceiling (maybe PVA ?)

What preparation did you do on the ceilings ??

Is the cracking/bubbling all over or just in that one spot ?

Hi wine~o, thanks for the reply... prep wise I didn't do anything much other than a quick rub down to de-nib it. It's only on this one spot.

If it is contamination, what would you suggest ?

Right... well you are obvs going to need to sand off new paint; I'd then sugar soap and rinse, check for any slippery bits that seem like any residue. You don't say what room this is. that can have a bearing on how you go about prep. Kitchens for instance will need de-greasing.

Arr, that'll be it then - it's the kitchen... Odd thing though, it also happened in an upstairs bathroom (but with a Vinyl Soft Sheen).

Thanks wine~o I'll sand them back and de-grease with a detergent.

Don't want to put you off, but we had similar issues when refurbing our house.

The original paint was so badly prepped, washing it with sugar soap ended up peeling it from the plaster.

Ended up getting the wallpaper steamer on it and stripping it back to plaster to start again.

Looks fantastic now it's done though!
